6:22 pm
it to be a pistol and they fired in defense of their lives. mr. neat oh was hit and he did not survive. there was a town hall last night in the mission. feelings are very very real, very very raw. that will be, i don't think that's going away anytime soon. again, i apologized for the police department for the loss of alejandro to mr. neat oh, he is as any father would be. i can't say anything more about that. friday night there was a shooting here in the tenderloin. it appears to be over an amount of money owed over drugs. the suspect vehicle pulled up. the suspect got out, argued with the person that he believed owed him a debit and he was not
6:23 pm
satisfied, he went to his car and produced a gun and he grazed then intended victim. that victim left the scene and went to bayview after getting treated for his injuries. san francisco police officers arrested him with a tech 9 machine pistol.ness he is in custody, the next day investigation led us to arrest of the suspect. a lot of credit has to go to the emmeraryville p.d.. lastly on some positive notes, we broke in the first days of little league baseball across the city over the past couple

6:25 pm
lengthy and very detailed and a comprehensive overview. muhammad and have been heroic in putting this together. i will defer the rest of my time to captain. >> thank you, chief. line item 2b. >> director hicks is feeling under the weather. frank from o cc will give the report. >> good evening, president mazzucco, commissioners, supervisor, chief and members of the public. i would like to take this opportunity to talk to everybody about the occ, office of citizens complaints. we used the district meetings as an opportunity to do outreach and to tell you all what we are all about. my name is i nez, a chairman
6:26 pm
at the occ. i'm here instead of director hicks, who is under the weather. i will speak a little bit about the functions of the office of the citizens complaints. it is the third largest civilian oversight of law enforcement agency in the united states. only surpassed in size by new york city and chicago. the office was created by a board of supervisors charter since 1982. it was later placed under the as as spis by the police commission. it's formed to building trust in the
6:27 pm
community by being the bridge being the public and police matters and misconduct in the commission and policy. to accomplish this, the occ's mission is to ensure police accountability by committing fair, timely unbiased investigations and making recommendations on police policies and practices. we also conduct mediation between complaints and police officers in order to better relations. in short, the o cc investigates civilian complaints against san francisco police department officers, and it also makes policy recommendations on the department's policies. in california law enforcement agencies are obligated to
6:28 pm
investigate procedures by complainants. the occ serves that purpose in this city. a diverse ability of backgrounds but never have been police officers in san francisco are staff members and investigators at the occ. we have 35 members. many most are investigators. there are four attorneys and then the rest is support staff. we try to basically find out what happened. we can only do this the help of witnesses and complainants who will give us as much information as possible. we follow the evidence by interviewing the person who complains and any witnesses that they lead us to. we also have subpoena power and can compel testimony at times. we try to get additional evidence from the police department in the form of police reports and other
6:29 pm
department generated documents. we also visit sites and of course conduct investigations in the best way possible, take photographs, talk to everybody that will talk to us. we try to complete our investigations within a period of 9 months. in california it is mandatory that we complete investigations within a year in order to be effective and to actually be able to discipline if that is warranted. the standard of proof for the occ is basically a preponderance of the evidence. it is more likely than not that something happened that we have to be able to articulate the evidence, not just have a feeling but be able to bring witnesses and articulate the report that why it's more than 50 percent that it happened. we need to get that point. if after afternoon
6:30 pm
-- an investigation we find the police violated a practice, we serve the report to chief sur. chief is you are can impose a suspension on an officer. if it's warranted to termination, then the police commission will have the jurisdiction of the case and they will consider it and hear the matter usually in a mini trial form. this is specifically disciplinary matters. so it's a personnel action against police officers if it is warranted. we also provide something that's very effective which is mediation between complainants and police officers on a one to one. our mediation program allows complainants to resolve issues with an accused officer or
